8 March 1909: 15,000 women marched through the streets of New York City for better pay, shorter work hours and the right to vote.
8 March 2018: women are still marching through the streets of cities for better pay, shorter work hours and gender equality. The battles are still being fought.
International Women’s Day is a celebration of how much women have accomplished and how much they are still fighting for progress. It’s a day to salute fierce females everywhere.
So what better way to pay homage than by letting some of the coolest female musicians in the world take over Deezer for the day?
As part of the celebrations, we asked Ibeyi and Anne-Marie to select their most inspirational, iconic female artists for specially curated playlists.
Ibeyi’s empowering playlist ranges from Nina Simone to Amy Winehouse and is packed with vital voices from around the world.
Anne-Marie’s eclectic selection includes some of the biggest names in pop music and is jam-packed with anthemic bangers.
Joining Ibeyi and Anne-Marie for the IWD Deezer takeover are Annie Lennox and Sofia Reyes. Take a look at their picks below and let us know who you’d add to your playlist.
